Twenty days ago, I told you I’d be taking a blogging break. Now that I have my computer back, I can explain what happened. My wife and I went on a roadtrip… to Canada! It was great. We saw black bears, killer whales and seals.
Like I mentioned in my last post, July will have a few changes for me.
What does this mean? Will I stop blogging entirely? NO! I just won’t have time in the coming month to fill you up on all the books I’ve read. However, I promise you that I will create posts for all the info you missed out on because of me taking a small break. Expect August to be full with book reviews and more interesting stuff!
As I don’t know the speed at which I will read, it’s very hard for me to set a goal. Above are a few of the books I picked. I hope I get to read them all. If I read more, you’ll find out soon enough!
See you in August, y’all!
Goal for June 2017? Four books. Did I make it? No. Damn, I failed. I only managed to read three books! I’m not sure how I missed out on the fourth book from my June list – Zeroes. It could be that the first book I read took too long. Or that all books were longer than the average I’ve read this year.
Anyway, here’s what I’ve read in June 2017!
Shit don’t mean shit. Or at least, that’s one of the statements that keeps returning in Finders Keepers. I finished it today, the second book of the Bill Hodges trilogy. As you might or might not know, I’m a Constant Reader. One of those that keep reading Stephen King’s books. Why? Well, the Master explains it himself in this book.
“… at least there were books. Books were escape.”
Today, I finished another Gregg Hurwitz novel. I read The Nowhere Man, which is the second book of the Orphan X series. As in the first book, Evan Smoak finds himself in an incredible, unbelievable adventure. What starts with as little as a napkin holder, soon turns into the most dangerous mission The Nowhere Man has ever faced. Ball bearings within ball bearings.
Today, I finished Algorithms to Live By – The Computer Science of Human Decisions. I found out about this book at a meetup about software craftsmanship. At the meetup, we discussed the first chapter of the book and it looked very promising. Hence, I decided to read it. Here’s what it did to me.
During the first months of 2017, I read most of the Ex-Heroes series. I really, really enjoyed it. I’ve been thinking about writing a blog post about the series for a while, but didn’t really know what to say. Today I figured I’d give it a go and explain to you why you should read the Ex-Heroes series. Here are five reasons why I enjoyed Peter Clines’ zombies vs superheroes mashup.
